Streetwork Project

No Judgement, Just Options

Many homeless young people face a day-to-day struggle to survive that can lead to physical and emotional harm.

Many have experienced family abuse, violence, rejection, and instability that lead to their homelessness. We work with homeless and street involved youth up to age 24 to help them seek stability.

Streetwork Project does this work in welcoming Drop-In Centers, at our Overnight Shelter and through street outreach teams.

Drop-In Centers

Streetwork Project operates Drop-In Centers where youth experiencing homelessness can socialize in a safe non-judgmental place. In the Drop-Ins, youth can get help with:

  • Daily necessities such as meals, showers, clothing, wellness activities
  • Medical care
  • Legal assistance
  • Mental health services
  • Sexual health help including HIV prevention materials and testing
  • Obtaining identification
  • Obtaining public benefits
  • Linkages to emergency shelter
  • Housing advocacy

Streetwork Overnight

Streetwork Project’s Overnight shelter has 24 beds for short-term emergency housing. Youth experiencing homelessness must be referred from one of the Drop-In Centers across the city. For the safety of our residents, the location of our overnight shelter is confidential. Please call one of the Drop-In centers to talk to an advocate about shelter.

Street Outreach

Many street involved youth remain hidden in plain sight. Our Outreach teams drive around the city to places where young people gather. We bring snacks and other supplies to help young people on the street while offering information about options and services.
